2nd IFOM Symposium – Advanced Lecture Course “Ubiquitin-assisted autophagy from mechanisms to pathology”(CO-ORGANIZED BY PROTEOSTASIS)

The chief objective of this course is to present to the newcomers in the field the state-of-the-art knowledge and methodology to study the role of ubiquitin in autophagic processes and in its dysregulation in neurodegeneration. Different topics will be covered each day by three trainers. The program includes lectures, posters, tutorials (“meet the expert” sessions) […]

In vivo analysis of ubiquitylation and sumoylation (ORGANIZED BY PROTEOSTASIS)

The purpose of this training school is to provide a hands-on practical session on tools and techniques used for the analysis of protein ubiquitylation and SUMOylation in living cells. The course is aimed at early stage researchers (PhD students, post-docs) who are interested in learning ubiquitin/SUMO-related techniques. The practical sessions will introduce diverse methodologies, ranging […]

PROTEIN-PROTEIN INTERACTIONS IN MEDICAL RESEARCH: YEAST TWO-HYBRID AND Co-IP/MS SYSTEMS

No protein is an island. Protein-protein interactions are intrinsic to every cellular process. Characterizing protein-protein interactions is critical to understand protein function, the biology of the cell and to be able to modulate specific cellular processes. In fact, in the past two decades protein-protein interactions have emerged as promising drug targetsm and the field is […]

Redox Regulation of Metabolic Processes

This course aims to gain an understanding of the role of reactive oxygen species in metabolism and in the regulation of pivotal metabolic processes. This course will cover these new developments in five days with different focus: general principles of redox regulation (day 1), the interaction between reactive species and metabolic processes and signalling cascades […]

New approaches to study Ub and UbL modifications

The ubiquitin field is expanding at an astounding pace, and the techniques used to interrogate it are becoming ever more sophisticated. In particular the cross-talk between ubiquitin and ubiquitin-like modification, and the emergence of ubiquitin modification by e.g. phosphorylation represent just two new areas of research that require new concepts and strategies. For scientists early […]
